Sample letter to the SAISD Board of Trustees:
I am writing to express my concern for the SAISD Board of Trustees poor choice to unanimously vote to expose girls to naked boys in showers and other facilities.
Your decision goes against common sense and the wisdom of risk avoidance that is utilized when promoting no drinking, no smoking, no texting and driving, etc. Actually, your decision will put girls at risk of pubescent boys and reduce the importance and benefit of the virtue of modesty.
Before it’s too late and someone gets hurt by your bad choice, delay the implementation of your decision until you can get public input from parents and other concerned citizens. You’ve made a politically correct decision not one based on science and reason or what’s good for the students.
